Virtualware Enhances Security and Privacy on VIROO VR Platform with ISO 27001 Certification

Virtualware and its proprietary software platform VIROO have been awarded International Organization for Standardization ISO 27001 Certification, as part of a continuous effort to uphold the privacy and security of its customers and business partners worldwide.


The ISO is a global leader in developing standards across industries to keep products and processes safe, effective, and sustainable. ISO 27001 is the international standard for information security. This standard represents a comprehensive framework for organizations to responsibly manage and protect data, including the Personally Identifiable Information (PII) of users.

By adhering to this standard, Virtualware establishes its commitment to providing a safe and responsible ecosystem.

“Information security is critical to our customers. We know how important it is to keep data safe, that’s why we wanted to ensure our organization-wide approach to data security is world class”

Unai Extremo, CEO & Founder at Virtualware

The ISO 27001 accreditation builds on Virtualware’s attainment of the ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Systems standard in 2007. The ISO 9001:2015 certification sets the standard for a quality management system (QMS), achieved when an organization exhibits its ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements.

Both certificates are a recognition of the commitment from across the organization to establish ways of working that bring value to our customers and reflect a conscious decision by the company to formalize a culture that has always existed within the business.

“We are delighted that we have received the accreditation for the leading international information security standard, reflecting the emphasis we place on ensuring the highest standards of safety” ads Unai Extremo (CEO & Founder of Virtualware”
